An already violent weekend continued early Sunday afternoon when one person was taken into custody following a reported stabbing near Dundas St. and William St.
Police responded to the scene around 12:39 p.m. and located a male suffering from stab wounds. He suffered non-life threatening injuries and was not taken to hospital.
An unidentified adult female was arrested at the scene and remained in police custody as of just after 4 p.m. Sunday, police said. The suspect and victim were known to each other and no other suspects are outstanding.
A knife was located at the scene, and the investigation is continuing, police said.
The incident is the fourth such incident investigated by police this weekend, and the city’s sixth stabbing incident in less than two weeks.
Earlier Sunday morning, around 6:49 a.m., police were called to the scene of a stabbing incident and violent spree on Fleming Drive that saw one man taken into custody. One man was bitten in the incident, another suffered a non-life threatening stab wound, and a woman was assaulted.
Meantime, on Saturday, four men were stabbed, one fatally, in two separate double stabbings in the city in a period of less than 24 hours.
In the first, a man was fatally stabbed near the intersection of Clarence St. and Dufferin Ave. around 3 a.m. Police have identified the victim as 21-year-old Dakoda Marcus Martin. A second man, aged 32, suffered non-life threatening injuries and has since been treated and released from hospital.
Police say 32-year-old Jeremy Reddick is facing one count of second-degree murder and one count of aggravated assault in connection to the incident.
Later that day, around 8:45 p.m., emergency crews were called to the American Motel at 2031 Dundas St. for a report of a stabbing.
At the scene, officers located two adult males suffering from stab wounds. One of the men was said to have been stabbed in the abdomen, the other twice in the back. Both were taken to hospital for their injuries, described as non-life threatening. Both remained there as of early Sunday morning, police said.
An unidentified 18-year-old London woman has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault. The woman’s identity is not being released as it may identify one of the victims, police said.
Anyone with information about any of the above incidents is asked to contact London Police at 519-661-5670 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
